Honda Superstar Marc Marquez won a breath taking Australian Grand Prix at Philip Island.  The defending MotoGP champion crossed the line 1.8 seconds ahead of evergreen Valentino Rossi who held on to see off the challenges of teammate Maverick Vinales and Frenchman Johann Zarco.

Australian Jack Miller gave local fans plenty to cheer, giving it a red-hot go and leading the race in the first four laps. The Marc VDS team Honda rider still finished a credible seventh as his rear tyre lost grip.
